Netherlands Embassy Berlin in Germany by OMA

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Article source: OMA

The Netherlands Embassy is a disciplined cube with equally disciplined irregularities which aims to facilitate a better understanding of Berlin, confronting divergent ideas about how the city, with its complexity, heaviness, opacity, and beauty, should build / rebuild. Traditional planning guidelines of the former West Berlin demanded that new buildings in the neighbourhood (the Roldandufer in Mitte) reflect the local 19th century architectural style. Planning officials in the former East Berlin were more open to innovation. As a result, OMA combined an obedient approach (strictly fulfilling the block’s perimeter) with a disobedient one (building an isolated cube).

Umaid Heritage by Design Atelier

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Article source: Design Atelier

Umaid Heritage Elevation controls require the use of local Jodhpur stone to be expressed as the primary building material.

Design Atelier worked out various elements for stone construction, for expression in screens, blocks and flutes to build a contemporary form that responds to the high sun and which gives the form an unusual presence in light. Natural stone preserves the unique local character, adds to the aesthetic appeal of stability, grandeur and continuity of style in the construction. Not only is local stone sustainable, its versatility of use, enduring life cycle, low maintenance and 100% recyclable qualities qualify it as a useful green material.

Shenyang Aquatic Residential Tower in China by Spatial practice

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

Article source: Spatial practice 

“How can we create an alternate living environment for a harsh cold climate? Is it possible to create a residential tower that is closed for warmth but open for views and sunlight?”

The project is located in front of Zhongshan Park in Shenyang, China; where the temperature drops to -11°C in winters. The design catches the maximum amount of natural sunlight while providing a large thermal mass for insulation. The result is a living zigzag facade with winter gardens acting as a buffer zone for cold winters and creating an internalized view.
